Assistant Store Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Reno, NV
No Offer
Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Best Buy (Reno, NV) in June 2012.

Interview

Since I was out of town, interview took place via webcam and phone. Answered the questions as best I could given that I was previously an assistant store manager with best buy applying for the same position. Though I felt the interview went well and observed positive reactions from the hiring manager, I was not offered the position. Was sad that after being a manager with BBY for 5 years, I would be turned down for this position

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Best Buy (Elyria, OH) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Communication for the interview was very quick. I think it was not even 24 hours from the time of my submission. The store manager called and scheduled my interview, which I worked around my work time. When I entered the store, the security member asked me if I had an interview. I waited well over my given time (try 15 minutes late). I was greeted by the store manager which was friendly; however, when it came to his appearance; he was sloppily dressed and did not give me eye contact. The interview went well. I interviewed with the store managers of the Midway Mall store, Avon store and Southpark store. My position was for the Midway Mall store in Elyria, Ohio. The interview was very basic. I felt I gave outstanding credentials to the management team about my selling metrics and how to teach/train/develop a team to great successes. However, the manager of Midway Mall could not look me in the eye to ask me questions. He just read from his paper like a 2 year old. Again, the questions pertained to HR, operations, and customer service; however, he must have felt that I was a threat to him and his job. I called two days later to ask if the postion was filled and I kept getting the shuffling around from the customer service associates when they asked who I was. He finally told me that I did not get the position; however, he would send my info to the district team. I replied not to waste his time because if he did not see my potential, then what other store manager will. Needless to say I closed the call with me never shopping with the company again and will take my business to another electronics store or online retailer.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview

    All communications were good. Interview process in the store is a 3 step process. Management level is one with either the GM or DM or both and a panel of other leaders. Expect an hour or so for the interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Best Buy (Bedford, NH) in June 2013.

    Interview

    I traveled an hour for my interview and arrived 10 minutes early. I waited for an hour. Come to find out the two gentlemen I had been watching wonder around and socialize were the interviewers. I'm sure this was tactical. It was very much a good cop bad cop scenario. Interview was very social and lengthy. I left to a waiting room full of young men, no other females.

    Interview

    Broken and unorganized. Nobody really knew what was going on and the room was a mess. Very bad way to represent your company. I need more words so this should get me over the limit.

    Interview

    Don't over talk or over prepare! Managers glaze over after to much info. Just smile and answer to the point. The drug test and online psych test weed out a lot. Just relax.

    Interview

    The interview process was a 2 step process. First was a phone interview with 2 people ask you different scenarios. About a 45 interview then I was invited to a face to face. Interview with the DM, HR, Store Manager and District manager for the area of the store you working. That interview was more like a greet and meet. It seem like they was just feeling me out. The interview was more relax environment.
